1.1: Right-click -> select in menu-choose (FAST REPLY NEEDED)

CLIM 1.1.

Need a quick reply if possible:  We are testing user with our interface
today. Just did the first one, next coming in an hour.  User's
frustration with the following problem is obscuring our measurement of
what we really want to find out with these subjects.

Right-click on clim:menu-choose puts up a menu containing just the one
command. Right click again on this puts up a menu containing a very
internal-representation of the command. How do I get clim:menu-choose to
treat right-click and left-click the same (i.e., select a menu item)? 

The problem is User expects that if right brings up the menu, right
should operate on it. 

We use right-click within the application to bring up the menu so I
can't do it by changing the gesture binding within the application as a
whole. I need this local to clim:menu-choose, which has no argument to
control this. Is there a LET for gestures? 

thanks, please reply direct --
